The provision of Notarial services is non-essential business under the current Lockdown.
Seeing people in person is contrary to Government advice. Notaries must not see people in person and those people, in turn, should not be moving about and should stay home.
Notaries may be available to provide advice or carry out an act electronically/without a meeting and the public is advised to phone or email a Notary in the first instance to ascertain what might be possible electronically. In certain circumstances Notaries may be able to notarise signatures remotely via audio link (skype, whatsapp, zoom, etc). Please see the details of NZ Notaries under the Find a Notary tab on this website.
